What is "Repetition of Words"? -- Repetition in English Language is the repeating of a word, within a sentence in order to PROVIDE EMPHASIS. 'Repetition of words' could be classified into many groups based on the placement of the words in a sentence. Different terms have been devised to denote different kinds of repetitions. Some of these terms are as follows: Adnominatio, Conduplicatio, Diacope, Epistrophe, Mesodiplosis, Palilogia, Polyptoton, Symploce, etc. Not going into the details of these 'hard-to-pronounce' terms, I have covered only most popular patterns of 'Repetition of words' in this book. Structure (1) ---- Word + and + Word -- This pattern is generally used to show 'continuation or repetition of an activity', or 'presence of many things or people of the same kind'. 1. -- She asked and asked about the money. 2a. -- Stars, planets, and galaxies emerged and evolved billions and billions of years ago. 2b. -- They have got billions and billions of dollars lying around in vaults. 3. -- There has been campaign and campaign against us for a very long time. 4. -- Wastage of water must be discouraged and discouraged. 5. -- Workers dug and dug the road. 6. -- We have eras and eras coming. 7. -- He called after her, "Where are you going?"
